Were the Redskins simulating quarterback cadence? Not this time

One week after the Dallas Cowboys accused the Redskins’ defensive linemen of simulating quarterback cadences, the Rams apparently had no similar qualms.

“I would like to use that as an excuse,” St. Louis Coach Steve Spagnuolo said, “but I can’t.” ...

This year marks the 11th time since 1990 that the Redskins have entered the bye week with a record above .500. The team has never finished the season with a losing record when carrying a winning record into the bye. ...

The Redskins’ defense allowed only 172 yards to the Rams, the fewest allowed by Washington since Dec. 30, 2007 against Dallas. The Redskins are now 9-0 since 2000 in games in which the defense has allowed 172 or fewer yards. ...

The Rams failed to get on the scoreboard in the first half, which marked the first time the Redskins have held an opponent to zero first-half points since Sept. 12, 2010. ...

Santana Moss’s first-quarter touchdown tied him with Steve Smith for ninth-most career touchdown receptions among active players (54). ...

Tight end Chris Cooley had just one reception on the day, but the catch marked the 427th of his career, tying him with Mike Ditka for 18th all-time among NFL tight ends.
